regulatory environment and rather than going to the specifics i would argue with a set of core principles that inform the positions we take. for the most part we are in favor of ensuring that relative to other distributors we are treated evenly. we are in favor of a level playing field so that if satellite is free to do certain things there is no reason we shouldn't be treated the same way. taxation should be comparable so that we can compete bradley without the regulatory policies influencing who winners and losers are. with respect to the way we interact with our programming vendors and broadcasters we think it's key that again the power not be brought to bear to favor one side or for the other and what we are working we are working through now is the fact that the video regulatory regime dates back to the 1992 cable act and needless to say over the last 20 plus years the world is changed quite a bit. so the level of competition we face is very different and the role that local broadcast place in the overall social ecosystem has changed somewhat and we think it's time to take a fresh lo

everything a process like public art would be really challenging in an environment like san francisco. so, i think every city is different. san francisco would be drastically affected if we adopted something that stringent. >> i just wanted to speak to -- a little bit to [speaker not understood] speaking about the vancouver program. and i do have some experience with that. ways also a coordinator of murals. and one of the benefits of having a process, whether that's a permit, whether there's a fee attached to that, whether there's a committee or if it simply goes through a process where different departments of the city can have input. for example, in vancouver and really the vancouver graffiti management mural program is almost identical to what tyra is talking about doing here. it's similar to public art murals, but similar in scope. when we were doing our murals, almost 200 of them, there was no permit in place, but there was a selection process. and, so, if that was the heritage property, that had to go to heritage. and they had to decide whether or not that building had been painted

(applause). >> something that took place yesterday was our medical exchange. rob is going to give you a summary of how that went and at the same time we're going to bring up some additional panelists who will give us their perspective. >> so we're go
